4 Reasons Evolution is False

  1. It does not match up the fossil record. The fossil record shows species appearing suddenly, not with small changes. An example is the Cambrian explosion. Life goes from being microscopic to complex multi cellular organisms suddenly. Evolutionists counter that evolution occurs with small isolated populations, under conditions that take too long to observe in a normal human lifespan (yes I'm talking about macro-evolution, the generation of new genes, and not speciation containing only a subset of the original genes) but too short to show up in the fossil record. Paradoxically they also proclaim that evolution requires "diversity" which is not likely to occur within small isolated populations.
  2. Evolution predicts common ancestors for the species. Phylogenetic trees will be different depending on each gene, which in turn will be different from those based on morphological characteristics. Even the wikipedia article explains this. Evolutionists try to explain the differences using terms like "horizontal gene transfer", but these are not part of the original evolution theory, as it is normally explained. Large amounts of horizontal gene transfer taking place violates the principles of genetics.
  3. Philosophically speaking, all that evolution claims to do is provide a kind of search algorithm. To say that life is caused by evolution, is like saying that the internet was created by google. So even if the proposed evolutionary processes took place, it can't really explain away the mysteries of life or deny intelligent design.
  4. The algorithm that evolution claims to work by, is flawed because the only source of information for it is the environment. Random mutations come from the environment. So does natural selection. In the end the only input to the proposed evolution function is random. Extracting information from a truly random stream is not possible.

It's interesting that you are blind to the flaws in your own arguments. You "prove" by simile and by making ridiculous oversimplifications. You also employ the flawed axiom of "If X is not true, then Y MUST be true." Also, you also (seemingly) deliberately misinterpret what the narrator is saying in order to make him sound silly (in the following blog post to this one). That may work on children and people who are already with you, but not on a thoughtful adult.

You also rehash the tired theory of irreducible complexity, which has been debunked over and over again. The very idea of it is silly and in terms of its usefulness to promote a Christian agenda is flawed. Again it's the old "if you can't prove X conclusively RIGHT NOW, then Y must be true."

Not that you yourself have tried this here (from what I've read) but I'd also like to address is the idea that 'evolutionists' have some sort of agenda to tear down Christianity. If you're referring to an athiest/christianity rift (if thats up for discussion too) then its silly because athiests by definition have no reason to try to convince you of anything. The only exception to that is when people spread misinformation and lies about scientific discovery. When science is under attack it does a disservice to everyone. Biologists can be wrong - yes - but in general the community takes the theory that best fits the facts and runs with it until something that describes the world around us better comes along.

To 'alexsaves': you are an idiot and a liar who supports bullshit like evolution. And apparently you don't even understand the concept of 'irreducible complexity'. That has soundly debunked evolution too many times to count. Evolutionist idiots can only give BS answers when confronted with the irrefutable truth of irreducible complexity, the shameless, lying, imbecilic asswipes. Evolution is for nincompoops.
